Full Day Trip to Hermanus from Cape Town

1. Full Day Trip to Hermanus from Cape Town

This circular tour takes you over a mountain pass to the seaside town of Hermanus. This town, nestled between mountains and the sea is not only very beautiful but offers some of the best shore based whale watching opportunities in the world (August – November). Close sightings of the Southern Right whale are likely. On the return journey we follow the coastline with the possibility of further sightings of whales (and even the possibility of sighting dolphins). On the return journey you will visit Bouchard Finlayson Wine Estate for a wine tasting near Betty’s Bay to have a look at the penguins (optional, for own account and time permitting) before returning to Cape Town in the afternoon. On Sundays, a stop is made at stony point instead of wine tasting at Bouchard Finlayson.

Book through local partner to save money

Had a great time doing this tour: Everything was well organized, the guides were knowledgeable, beautiful drive down to Hermanus, the whales were amazing to watch! Two recommendations: 1) Book through the local partner directly as it's about 20 pounds cheaper than booking through this website. 2) Book the whale watching boat tour as a combo package with your trip to Hermanus as it will save you some money too.

A great day, even if the whales to far to see them clearly

We had great guide/driver who knew a lot and has a great sense of humor. The day was beautiful as well as the surroundings. Only downside was, that there was little time to enjoy the view when stopping & getting out to see the view (for pictures). Quickly taking pics and getting back in the bus seemed to be the goal. This instead of enjoying the great surroundings. But all in all, a great day!

Fantastic day. Weather was a dream. We have seen wales on the walk.

On the way to Hermanus we drove through a permanently changing countryside. Very entertaining to look out of the window. In Hermanus we walked along the coast with a beautiful view on the wales. Our guide was very nice. On the way back we visited the pinguins and he drove along the seaside back to Capetown Telinho us a lot about locals.

Our driver was on time and friendly, and stopped at a lot of good places. He was very good. Going out on a boat to watch whales is NOT included in the price. We did this and saw two whales, but sea rough making it slightly unpleasant.

The trip was pleasant, whales were somehow exciting & the beach was very beautiful. Many and high cliffs!
